Bob Norsworthy & Brett Johnson--Equip

Yesterday morning Sam and I met with Bob Norsworthy and Brett Johnson. They work with an organization called Equip and their mantra is "Transforming communities by transforming business." They really do a great job. The global day of prayer, which this year will gather 50m believers around the globe was started by a businessman in Capetown (Graham Powers) who went through a "repurposing" of his business five years ago with Brett. They observe that without transforming business and infusing new businesses into communities most transformational efforts fail. Sam commented that he was recently in the Anacostia area of DC that had several several churches on each block, each with complimentary 501(c)(3)s but the community was blighted. They need business. We are looking to begin gathering a group of 15-20 folks from the business community in Boulder to go throuth this transformational process. It's the real deal.
